Welcome to an important international event on management, technology development and user influence in Elderly Care in Sweden, the Netherlands and Switzerland.
The Swiss Chamber of Commerce in partnership with Forum for Health Policy have the pleasure of inviting you to a workshop focusing on elderly care in Sweden, the Netherlands and Switzerland on 3 November 2020 at the Embassy of Netherlands in Stockholm. This event will be available as a live event and as a webinar.
The corona pandemic has brought great challenges and difficult consequences, and not least a huge strain on elderly care throughout Europe. Demographic trends are already placing great demands on well-functioning care for the elderly throughout Europe. Elderly care is facing major challenges, not least financing, queues for special housing, slow development in the introduction of new processes, new technology and user influence.
We are delighted to be able to welcome prominent speakers from various sectors of the healthcare field from Sweden, Switzerland, and the Netherlands.
